"Force is like giving the object a shove, it adds motion in a direction. But since it is added, the object will go faster and faster as long as Force is applied."
"Force is like a push or pull on an object in a certain direction. It is the physical entity that causes an object to accelerate. Units for the magnitude of force include dynes, newtons (symbol N), and pounds (lbs). "
"A way of defining the concept of force is like pushing or attraction; pushing a piece of wood on a table surface, there is a force on the workpiece; However, the formulation of Newton has the advantage of offering a more precise definition of the concept of force. The first law of inertia says that a mobile tends to keep moving at a constant speed while any external force acting on it."
METAMIA is a free database of analogy and metaphor. Anyone can contribute or search. The subject matter can be anything. Science is popular, but poetry is encouraged. The goal is to integrate our fluid muses with the stark literalism of a relational database. Metamia is like a girdle for your muses, a cognitive girdle.
